A great example of how well Goodall guitars are constructed, this Rosewood Standard has light surface wear, and a bit of fret wear, but no other signs of its 25 year life under string tension. No repairs or modifications of any kind. Although James Goodall later offered a Dreadnought model, at this time he did not bother as the body dimensions and overall air capacity of his Standard were very close to that of a D. But a Goodall Standard, even a rosewood version like this one, has a bit more treble in its tonal mix and the result is a do-anything steel string. Great for fingerstyle, and this one has the 1 3/4" neck width, but it can also handle even the most aggressive flatpicking without sounding overdriven. There are a few dings to the top, but nothing deep or unsightly, and a few faint finish crazing lines around the bridge. Original TKL case.
